It’s always worth checking with both the DJ and the Band about their thoughts and requirements on working alongside other Artists of any form.
Most DJ’s and Bands should be happy sharing the limelight, but things like the amount of space available, when to set-up, who’ll be setting up where, set times and any logistics involved are certainly things to consider.
Most DJ’s are very happy playing in Marquees, but they do often require a little extra work, and as such, some DJ’s charge a small ‘Marquee’ supplement. A DJ can usually play in almost any outside location as long as he has weather-proof cover (top and sides) in case of rain as almost all DJ kit is not waterproof in any way. Set-up can be done on most surfaces, but the DJ area for setting up needs to be solid and stable. This usually and ideally means NOT on a temporary staging or similar. Most of this type of staging is not designed to have the kind of tripod stands most DJ’s use put up on them.. The set-up area must also be on a level surface and not on a slope of any kind.
